Millennium Falcon LED Acrylic Wall Hanger


(Dustin S Tilton) #1

Millennium Falcon wall hanger made on my Shapeoko XXL. Vectric VCarve quick engrave toolpath using a diamond drag bit on an 18"x24" piece of 1/4" cast acrylic (from eStreetplastics.com). I used LED standoffs to light the sign (ordered from Outwater.com). The LED standoffs serve to both light the sign and provide a 1" standoff. The background is 1/2" MDF painted black. I have the wiring run through the wall into the utility room behind it, so no visible wires. I have a remote controlled outlet on order to turn it on and off. I used a 1/8" 2 flute flat endmill to cut out the outline, then flame polished the edges using a propane torch.
This is hanging in my new Star Wars themed bathroom.

So just two of those standoffs gives that much light?! That looks incredible!

Yes, I was really surprised how much light they put out. I think I will be using the standoffs quite a bit. Of course I have a bunch of LED strips to use up, but I think moving forward I will use the standoffs.
